My x reg ET2 is playing up. i recently filled it up with too much oil and since then i'm having trouble. It doesn't have enough revs to keep going and stalls at the lights every time i stop. How do i increase the revs on the bike?
It has to keep going for the next 5 months before i move away...
There is an adjustment screw on the carburetor facing towards the back wheel. You have to reach down about finger length. With the engine running and the ET2 on its stand, turn the screw until the engine revs up to a level you r happy with.

I'm not familiar with ET2s but I had a similar problem with a Vespa 100 years ago. After hours of messing about i discovered a bolt had fallen and blocked one of the air inlets on the bottom of the frame. Was fine when i kicked it but when my bum was on the saddle it kinda 'sealed' around the tank area and starved the engine of air. As i say, i don't know about new ET2s but sounds kinda similar symptoms.
there is only 1 fuse on an et2 and if the horn, starter and indicators work, then this iis not the problem.
It is most likely the battery which is at the back of the speedo. to get to this you need to remove the mirrors and screws from the handlebars, split the casing, disconnect the speedo cable and all electric blocks (carefully) and turn the speedo over. there is a little round plug that needs to be removed and the battery is behind it.
I think it is a rechargable battery, so replacing it with a normal battery will only work temporarily.
To replace the mudguard is easy enough but takes a good while.
Remove case from the handlebars (mirrors first then screws and split).
Remove the bolt that holds the handle bars to the steering column and remove the handlebars.
At the top of the steering column you need to unscrew the round nuts that tighten the steering column.
You need to disconnect the brake hose and cable (later you will need to bleed and refil the brake fluid).
Then you need to lift the frame up from the front so that the steering column slips out, be careful not to lose the bearings.
The mudguard is held on with (i think) 2 bolts. remove these and then lift the mudguard up the steering column. drop the new one in it's place and put everythiing back together in the reverse order you took them off.
